Hello mom to be, new mom, veteran mom, or anyone who is simply looking for easy meal ideas! I will be adding to this blog as I make new, easy, meal-prep friendly meal ideas! I have an 18 month old, was due with our second yesterday (my babies like coming late), and run about a dozen businesses with my husband who is also a body builder and eats like a horse. Believe me, I LOVE simply meal ideas that can span over a few days so I only have to cook once. I will include the amount of time it takes for each meal below as well and try to give a rough idea on how many different meals the recipe will generate!
I personally will cook food for 3-4 days tops at a time and my husband often gets into my meals and takes 2 of my containers for 1 of his meals but the whole point is to save time and money- so it doesn’t matter to me who eats them! Also, please note, if I list venison (or other wild game), you can sub any meat you have for that meat- it doesn’t have to be the exact thing we eat!
Venison Chipotle Bowls- makes 10 meals
- 3lb ground venison
- 5 cups brown rice (I just used a full bag)
- 2 red peppers, 2 yellow peppers, 2 orange peppers- sliced
- 2 onions- chopped
- Toppings of choice: pico (I do store bought), jalapeños, cheese
- For rice: spray butter and cilantro seasoning OR lime juice
- 2 taco seasoning packets
- 3 TBSP oil
- In a pot on stovetop, cook rice per cooking instructions. Mine took 45 minutes on simmer so I chopped the veggies and got the meat ready. I started cooking veggies and meat at minute 20 so everything would be done at the same time
- While rice is cooking, per above, prep veggies and meat
- In a skillet over medium heat, add oil and veggies Cook until onions are translucent
- In a skillet over medium heat, covered, cook meat. Drain once cooked. Add taco seasoning packets and whatever water the packets call for. Cook additional 5 minutes
- In a bowl, add rice and add spray butter and cilantro or your lime juice. Top with meat, veggies, and various toppings.
- This meal took 45 minutes to prep and yields about 10 meals which breaks down to less than 5 minutes per meal!
